  • Woman killed after she was thrown down stairs in Brooklyn investigators say

Police officers assigned to the 77th Precinct who were initially called to the house to check on the victim's welfare did not find anything out of the ordinary and left.

Tonie Wells, 22, was found dead inside her Crown Heights home Wednesday after her toddler's constant crying and screaming led a neighbor to call 911, authorities said.

NYPD's Internal Affairs Bureau will be reviewing what went down.

Russia: Several injured after blast in Saint Petersburg supermarket, say police
The committee has opened a criminal investigation into "an attempt to kill two or more persons in a generally risky way". "As a result, several people have been injured", the Saint Petersburg police said, giving the incident's location.

Most damning were revelations that NYPD cops had been called to the Brooklyn home earlier that Wednesday to check on Wells who told 911 she was "scared" of her husband because he was 'acting amusing, ' according to police sources cited by the nypost. The New York Post reported officers were dispatched to check on the young mother who was "scared" of her husband because he was "acting amusing".

Wells' husband, Barry Wells, was taken into police custody around 6 p.m. Wednesday with the assistance of family, friends and the New Rochelle Police Department, Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said on Thursday.

Witnesses on the scene allegedly heard an argument and something falling down the stairs, The Post reports. I'm still in shock, ' Ruiz said. 'I would never think in a million years something like this would happen'. It is not clear what day or time Tonie's sister called 911 or what, if anything, the officers observed when they drove to the home. "It was definitely him".

Julian Assange's Twitter Account Disappears
Previously, Assange's most recent tweet was posted on the 22nd December, and made no mention of a possible leave from Twitter. Assange's account is back up again, though his follower count appeared to have dipped below 10,000 initially.

Police are reportedly aware of a social media post by Wells saying that she was eight-months pregnant.

"An initial determination deemed this person's death to be suspicious and it is now being investigated", Deputy Chief Michael Kempfer said.

According to the Post, police have previously responded to a domestic incident at the home. Her husband, Barry Wells, was arrested in the death, but larger questions remain: why did the cops not get out of the auto, and why are police not taking these calls seriously?
